Recycle your biscuit and lolly bags at Coles

By: Michael Fox

Replas Bollards are to used as station markers for the self-guided walks through Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve. So it is inspiring to learn that our plastic shopping bags as well as biscuit and lolly packets can now be recycled at our local Coles store.

Planet ARK blog post An Australian first – Free soft plastic recycling at Coles tells the story and lists the soft plastics we can now recycle rather than throw it in your Red Lid rubbish bin. Red Lid bins are gradually replacing the Green Lid general waste bins in line with the Australian Standard for waste bins.

Soft plastic you can recycle in the new Coles bins includes:

  • Bread bags
  • Biscuit packets
  • Frozen food bags
  • Rice and pasta Bags
  • Confectionery packets
  • Newspaper wrap (plastic)
  • Plastic shopping bags
  • Old green bags

Soft plastics like these cannot be recycled in the Yellow Lid household bins.
